Default The Official "Music Was So Much Better in the Glorious Days of Yore" Thread

For the record, I'm not personally a subscriber to this particular school of thought. But since people are constantly starting threads to discuss this topic I figured we could do with a central location for them. If you want to discuss how musicians are less talented/original/classy/whatever than they were back in the good old days, this thread is the place to do it. And every time I see a new thread started on this topic I'm going to just go ahead and merge it with this one.

There's plenty of great modern music. People need to quit bitching.

I agree, but I figure since I can't prevent the bitching I may as well try to contain it.

If there's plenty of great modern music, I'm yet to find it. Talentless bastards.

This is the first moan about the current state of music in this thread! HORRAY!

It's not about the music itself. It's about the way people approach music--there are times in your life that you're just more open to certain kinds of... I dunno, emotive association, I guess.

I miss the music scene I grew up with (the mid to late '90s, basically). There are records from that period that I can't even look at with any kind of critical assessment because they're so much a part of my life and formative experience the music is inseparable from the memory. Actually I think it's that I miss more than the music itself--being so fully steeped and soaked in it.

It's like falling in love. Your first love always sticks with you as a unique and kind of untouchable experience, no matter how much and truly you can love someone else later in life.

Aww man, music isn't real anymore. Today it's all about the money. Back in the 70's it was all about the passion and the music.

Very well said. In fact that pretty much sums it all up. Close thread, lol.

Yeah, it doesn't need to be discussed, being written in stone as fact and all.

The past few years has seen music of such quality not known to man since the glorious year of 1998. I completely reject the idea that music was better at a certain time. Music can only get better, as new sounds are explored and new bands are formed.
